This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

THE SEA.WALL AND WORKS APPERTAINING THERETO. 

The seawall as now constructed and under contract extends from the 
foot of Taylor Street to near the foot of Mission Street, a distance of 
9,201 feet. 

Section 8a is under contract with the San Francisco Bridge Company. 
The contract was let on March 5, 1891. This section completes the wall 
across the foot of Market Street, and is of the same type of wall as 
Section 86, or a vertical concrete wall. It is expected that this work 
will be completed during the present calendar year. 

Section B, extending westerly 1,000 feet from Section A, or from 
the foot of Powell Street to the foot of Taylor Street, was let to F. J. & 
J. V. Owens on September 22, 1890. The work has met with many 
delays, owing to the inability of the contractors to carry out their work. 
Their bondsmen have intervened and are endeavoring to carry out the 
terms of the contract. It is hoped that this section will be completed 
before severe rains. set in. 

The following are the bids received upon these two pieces of seawall 
construction, at the respective dates mentioned:

Total cost of 7,361 feet (average cost per linear foot, $176 70) $1,300,672 85 

The extension of the seawall to Van Ness Avenue will reclaim a large 
area for the State as seawall lots. 

The Board would call the attention of the executive and legislative 
departments of the State to the growing developments of the property 
between Black Point and the Presidio. The water-front line of 1876-7, 
as laid down by the Board of Engineers, has not been ratified w^est of 
Van Ness Avenue by legislative action. The Legislature of 1893 should 
pass such laws as would initiate the extension of this line, and author- 
ize this Board to proceed with such preliminary work as may be found 
necessary and advisable. 

THE BELT RAILROAD. 

The Act of March 19, 1889 (Stats. 1889, p. 338), authorized and 
directed this Board to construct the Belt Railroad. So much as has 
been deemed necessary has been built, and a supply of 501 tons of 60- 
pound steel rails, and the requisite fastenings, have been obtained. The 
road as constructed extends from the foot of Francisco Street to the foot 
of Broadway — with double tracks and three rails, to accommodate broad 
and narrow-gauge cars throughout. Connections are had with the 
various railroads by steam-ferry transfer at the foot of Lombard Street, 
and side-tracks are provided on Seawall Lots Nos. 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14. 

The Board owns and operates one first-class Baldwin yard locomotive 
and two station fiat cars. 

The policy of the Board was outlined in the report of 1888-90, a& 
follows: 

There can be no donbt of the advantages to the State at large of the past policy of 
the Board regarding the absolute ownersnip and control by the State of all the water- 
front property, and the structures thereon. No person nor corporation should own any 
structure whatever upon the State property, nor should such structure, when built by 
the State, be under the exclusive control of any person or corporation. (Report 1888-90, 
pp. 14-15.) 

The Board has found this view sound, not only in carrying out the 
Belt Railroad, but in all portions of its vast trust. 

The cost of construction and equipment of the Belt Railroad has been 
as follows:

Railroad and yard facilities upon seawall lots, wharves, and piers. 

LEASES. 

Since the date of the last biennial report, the only lease then out- 
standing has expired, namely: The lease to the Pacific Mail Steamship 
Company, of New York, of the property at Brannan and First Streets. 

This lease expired on January 6, 1892. Negotiations were conducted 
looking to changing the location of this company, but it was found 
inexpedient to make any immediate change. 

The Board therefore assigned the company the use of the wharves 
and sheds at Brannan and First Streets, at a monthly rental of 11,800, 
conditioned upon the assumption by the company of the cost of main- 
taining the structures. 

REPAIRS AND PILE DRIVING. 

The pile driving plant owned by the Board has been kept in constant 
use. Such use has naturally required extensive repairs to the machinery. 
The Board is satisfied with the greater economy in thus performing work, 
and the results show a saving over the average cost of this work when 
done bv contract. 

DREDGING. 

The dredging operations of the Board have been continued as hereto- 
fore. The change in the character of materials to be dredged for Section 
B necessitated a more powerful bucket to attack the packed beach sand 
at that locality. 



22 REPORT OF BOARD OF STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 

The age and unsound condition of the tug "Anasha" has necessitated 
the construction of an additional tug, which will be the counterpart of 
the '^ Gov. Irwin." A contract has therefore been let to Messrs. Hinkley, 
Spiers & Hayes for the construction of a tug and fire-boat, to cost $22,475. 
No payments have as yet been made. 

The "Anasha" was furnished in 1875, as part of the dredging plant 
then acquired by the State. In this connection, it may be proper to 
review the past cost of dredging. 

From 1863 to 1874 dredging was done by contract, at prices ranging 
from 36 cents to 50 cents per cubic yard, the average price being near 
the latter figure. 

This cost was deemed excessive by Chief Engineer Arnold, who urged 
the abandonment of the contract system and the State ownership of a 
complete dredging plant. 

This was accomplished in 1874, and the cost of dredging has varied 
since that date from 6x^5^ cents to 12^*^^ cents per cubic yard, the 
variation being caused by extensive repairs to the plant, and by varia- 
tions in the price of fuel. The beneficial results of the system are very 
apparent. 

The appended table gives the detailed items of this work since the 
inauguration of the system:

24 REPORT OF BOARD OP STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 

LITIGATION. 

The Board respectfully calls attention to, and commends the very full 
and satisfactory report of, their attorney, Mr. F. S. Stratton. 

It will be observed that all old cases pending for years have been 
pushed to final decision, which in nearly all cases has been in favor of 
the State. 

Also, that $3,910 25 has been collected from defaulting officers and 
employes, and from disputed tolls and dockage, which sum has been 
paid into the Harbor Improvement Fund. 
Respectfully submitted.

To the honorable Board of State Harbor Commissioners: % 

Gentlemen: Since the date of my last report, in compliance with 
your instructions, I have examined the books and accounts of the' 
department for the six months ending June 30, 1892. This completes 
my examination of the two years' business, commencing July 1, 1890, 
and ending June 30, 1892.

SAN FRANCISCO HARBOR IMPROVEMENT FUND. 

I am in receipt of a lettfer from the Hon. E. P. Colgan, State Con- 
troller, under date of September 20, 1892, replying to my respects of 
the 19th of same month, wherein he reports: 

Balance to the credit of the San Francisco Harbor Improvement Fund, 
June 30, 1892 __ _ $328,357 18 

Add the amount remitted by the Secretary of the Board of State Harbor 
Commissioners in settlement of June accounts i _ 24,911 16 

$353 268 34 
Balance as per ledger, June 30, 1892 _ 353,268 30 

Difference between accounts long standing, 4 cents. 

I would therefore report that the accounting is correct. I have also 
examined the several statements of receipts and disbursements em- 
bodied in the biennial report, and compared them with the ledger 
accounts of the Commissioners, and find them likewise correct. 

Of the general working of the business everything runs smoothly, 
and in the carrying on of the Secretary's department there is a com- 
mendable amount of care and efficiency displayed. Other departments 
with which I have not such immediate contact seem entitled to the 
same meed of praise.

26 REPORT OP BOARD OP STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 



REPORT OF F. S. STRATTON, ATTORNEY. 



San Francisco, August 1, 1892. 

To the^honorahle Board of State Harbor Commissioners: 

Gentlemen: I herewith submit to you the following report, showing 
the present condition of matters relating to the Law Department of the 
Board. 

It has been customary with my predecessors in office to refer merely 
to the actual litigation of the Board; but my experience has shown that 
the duties of the attorney are as largely concerned with questions su^)- 
mitted, proceedings undertaken, and opinions requested, which do not 
involve appearance in Court, but which nevertheless are important in 
results and in time and labor expended. This branch of the duties of 
the office may, perhaps, with propriety be referred to in this report. 

Upon the commencement of my terin of office, November 1, 1890, a 
large number of cases were pending in which the Board was a party, 
some of them of very long standing, and it has been my aim to clear the 
calendar of all such suits, both old and new. In this a large measure * 
of success has been obtained, to the end that during the first part of 
my present term fifteen cases have been taken up and disposed of, all of 
them resulting fstvorably to the Board, except one which was tried and 
decided pursuant to directions from the Supreme Court on a former 
appeal. 

Generally speaking, there are only several actions which are now pend- 
ing, and all matters in this department are up to date. 

I have held myself in readiness at all times to attend, and have, 
whenever desired, been present at the meetings of the Board. I have 
continually been calle'd upon to render oral opinions and advise in busi- 
ness coming before the Commission, and in addition I have given written 
opinions touching matters of law in a large number of instances, from 
time to time as desired. 

Proposed laws and Code dmendments have been drafted, contracts 
drawn up, and parties with supposed claims against the State, arising 
out of the business of the Commission, the asserted negligence* of its 
employes, or the derelictions of its contractors, have been on many 
occasions satisfied without recourse to litigation. 

Some ten or more cases have also been tried by me in the Police Courts, 
being prosecutions by the Board in the name of the people against vari- 
ous parties for the promiscuous dumping of earth, rock, and sand into 
portions of the harbor already dredged by the State. Convictions were 
had in all cases, and the effect has been largely to prevent the continued 
obstruction to navigation and commerce by the gradual filling in of navi- 
gable waters. 

With several of its contracts for constructing portions of the seawall, 
the Board and counsel have been put to great annoyance by dereliction 
on the part of contractors. In the matter of contract with Messrs. 



REPORT OF BOARD OP STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 2i 

Antonelle & Doe, wherein some $28,000 was due from the Board on 
completion of the work, rival claimants to the fund in great number 
argued their respective rights, and four separate suits were instituted 
against the Commissioners. The matter was finally adjusted by draw- 
ing a warrant in favor of the original contractors and their direct 
assignees, taking security in the form of certificate of deposit to protect 
the State against judgment by creditors and other parties in interest 
adverse to the contractors. 

The contract with F. J. & J. V. Owens was also a fruitful source of con- 
tention between the Board on one side, and unpaid laborers and material 
men, creditors, assignees, and conflicting powers of agency from the con- 
tractors on the other. The sureties on the original bond given to secure 
due completion of the contract have now undertaken to finish the work. 

During the past six months there have been collected by suit from the 
sureties of Josiah F. Fairfield, a defaulting Wharfinger, $1,000; from 
Walter E. Huey, defaulting Collector, $1,909 65; the Supreme Court has 
just affirmed judgment against the sureties of Wm. M. Haynie, default- 
ing Collector, for $818, or thereabouts, which will be collected in due 
course, and from M. R. Roberts various bills for dockage, aggregating 
$437 60, have been collected by judgments of Courts. 

No special or assistant counsel have been employed by the Board 
during my incumbency, except Mr. John R. Jarboe was, at my sugges- 
tion, retained for the purpose of passing upon the correctness of draft 
of Act for the proposed issuance of bonds in the sum of $600,000 for 
construction of the San Francisco freight and passenger depot. 

I have, further, for the benefit of the Commissioners, and all other 
parties in interest, prepared a codified list of statutes and sections of the 
several Codes in full, which has been printed in pamphlet form, con- 
taining all laws and Acts in force relating to the Board. This volume 
has been freely indexed, and will, it is believed, be of use and benefit as 
a concise compendium of enactments concerning the duties and rights 
of the State Harbor Commissioners. 

The litigation to which the Board has been a party, as conducted 
since November 1, 1890, may be detailed as follows: 

The People ex rel. The Board of State Harbor Commissioners vs. Josiah F. 
Fairfield, Charles /. Hendry ^ and W, S, Ray, No, 10938 , Supreme 
Court, 

An action to recover $12,672 95 from Fairfield as principal, and 
Hendry and Ray as sureties, on the former's bond as Wharfinger. 

This action was pending in the Supreme Court on. an appeal by defend- 
ants from a judgment against them for $1,911. The case was submitted 
on briefs on March 18, 1891, and on July 13, 1891, an opinion was filed 
reversing the judgment and order appealed from. (See 90 Cal. p. 186.) 
On retrial, before Department No. 3 of the Superior Court of the City 
and County of San Francisco, a judgment for $1,000 was entered, by 
consent, on January 17, 1892. This amount was then collected and 
paid in to the Board. 



28 REPORT OF BOARD OE STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 

People of the State ex rel. Board of State Harbor Commissioners vs, H, M, 
La Rue and A, S. Greenlaw, No, 10996, Supreme Court. 

This was an action to recover for defalcations by Wm. H. Haynie 
while Wharfinger. 

Judgment for the Board was rendered by the lower Court, and, upon 
appeal, the decision was, on June 16th last, affirmed. (See 30 Pac. 
Reporter, p. 131.) The amount found due aggregates $820, or there- 
abouts, the matter of costs being uncertain, and as the defendants are, 
as I understand it, responsible, I expect to turn over the sum claimed 
within a reasonable time. 



John Hachett vs. The State of California. No. 27567, Superior Court. 

This was the suit permitted by Act of the Legislature of March 15, 
1889, wherein plaintiff, as assignee of Wm. D^ English, claims damages 
in the sum of $55,000 for breach of contract by the Board of State 
Harbor Commissioners. 

This case was elaborately argued and submitted upon briefs before 
Judge Wallace, special counsel for the State having been heretofore 
employed to assist the attorney for the Board. On January 5, 1891, 
demurrer was sustained, which in eftect went to the merits of the action, 
the Court holding broadly that Hackett was in no wise entitled to 
damages, and that the Board had not violated its contract with English. 
Since that date the complaint has been amended, and demurrer thereto 
again sustained, followed, upon refusal to amend, by entry of final 
judgment in favor of the Board and the State. No appeal to the 
Supreme Court has as yet been taken by plaintiff*. 



Warren Payne et al. vs. Wm. D. English et al. as members of the Board of 
State Harbor Commissioners. No. W6I4, Superior Court. 

This was an action to secure perpetual injunction against the Board, 
restraining them from constructing certain contemplated wharf improve- 
ments on Channel Street, southerly side of South Mission Block No. 1 2, 
bounded by Third, Fourth, Channel, and Berry Streets. 

The real issue was as to whether the block in question was 240 feet 
wide, as contended by the Board, or 275 feet wide, as urged by plaintiffs. 
On July 20, 1888, the Court rendered judgment in favor of the Board. 
This was, however, on appeal, reversed by the Supreme Court on July 
1, 1889. (See 79 Cal. p. 540.) Th6 case was retried before Judge 
Garber during parts of February, March, and April, 1891, the case con- 
suming both time and labor, and on August 4, 1891, decision was ren- 
dered in favor of plaintiffs. The settlement of statement on motion 
for a new trial and on appeal to the Supreme Court is now pending. 



REPORT OF BOARD OF STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 29 

J, W, Taylor et al. vs, J, S. Antonelle and the Board of State Harbor 
Commissioners et al. No. S0606, Superior Court, 

This was an action commenced September 22, 1890, to recover $27,- 
783 59 from the defendants Antonelle & Doe, and that the Board be 
directed to- draw warrant for the sum named in favor of plaintiff. 

This dispute was incident to the Antonelle <fe Doe complications 
above referred to, and was one of several suits growing out of the finan- 
cial embarrassments of the seawall contractors. The Board, after hear- 
ing all the claims of various parties, drew warrant in favor of the 
Kennedy & Shaw Lumber Company as assignees of Antonelle & Doe, 
they having a clear prima facie title to the fund in question. The 
interests of all other claimants have, however, been protected by taking 
from the payees ample security with which to satisfy any judgments 
obtained, should the Courts determine that they have any rights. The 
Board has therefore, practically, no further interest in this action. 



Pacific Rolling Mill Company vs, Wm, D. English et al. as members of the 
Board of State Harbor Commissioners. No. 31314, Superior Court. 

This case also grew out of the Antonelle & Doe complications. The 
complaint was filed December 3, 1890, asking judgment for $4,670 12, 
as assignees in equity of that amount from Antonelle & Doe. The 
action is in the same category as the suit above noticed, and is now set 
for trial before Judge Hebbard, for August 15, 1892. 



The Kennedy & Shaw Lumber Company vs, William D, English et al. as 
members of the Board of State Harbor Commissioners. No. 31513, 
Superior Court, 

In this case the corporation plaintiff sought to mandamus the Board 
by petition filed December 22, 1890, to secure drawing of warrant in 
their favor for $28,012 as the assignees of Antonelle & Doe. After 
filing answer, counsel for the Board sought by motion to have all 
adverse parties brought into Court, and the rights of the conflicting 
claimants under Antonelle & Doe determined. This motion the 
Court, on March 20, 1891, denied, and subsequently, on July 23, 1891, 
a judgment of dismissal of the action was entered. 



The People of the State, etc., ex rel, the Board of State Harbor Commis- 
sioners vs. Sidney J. Loop et al. No. 31926, Superior Court. 

This was an action commenced January 29, 1891, against the sureties 
on the official bond of Walter E. Huey, late Collector of the Board, for 
the sum of $2,786 05, the amount of his defalcations. 

A trial was had on November 23 and 24, 1891, before Judge Finn and 
a jury, resulting in a verdict in favor of the Board, with costs, amount- 
ing to $1,909 65. The defendants gave notice of intention to move for 



30 REPORT OP BOARD OF STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 

new trial, but abandoned further proceedings, and on June 10, 1892, the 
final balance was collected from the sureties, and the entire amount 
found due paid over to the Board. 



The People ex reL Board of State Harbor Commissioners vs. M, R. Roberts. 

No. 66655, Justice^ s Court. . 

This was a test case commenced May 14, 1891, to recover $97 50^ 
dockage charges, the defendant contending that his vessels were exempt 
from paying any rates, and that a certain Act of the Legislature^ 
approved March 31, 1891, w^as unconstitutional and void. 

On account of its importance, the action was transferred by stipula- 
tion to Judge Wallace, and tried by him May 22, 1891. A decision was 
rendered August 1, 1891, in favor of the Board on all points, and judg- 
ment entered accordingly. 

The Commissioners remitted certain penalties, and the full dockage 
bill due was paid in to the Board. 



The People ex reL Board of State Harbor Commissioners vs. M. R. Roberts, 

No. 3i219, Superior Court. 

This was an action to recover $569 70 dockage charges, the complaint 
being filed September 15, 1891. 

The matters involved were the same as in the case above noted. The 
Board remitted all penalties, and defendant subsequently, on Septem- 
ber 17, 1891, paid in to the Board the full amount due. 



The People^ etc., ex rel. Board of State Harbor Commissioners vs. Wm. B. 

Hill. No. 34528, Superior Court. 

In this case the Board sought to obtain a decision determining the 
question of their jurisdiction on Channel Street, westerly from Fiftli 
Street. 

The defendant contended that the Act of March 15, 1878, granting 
the Board jurisdiction on Channel Street as far as the ebb and flow of 
tide water, had been repealed by Section 2524 of the Political Code, 
which limited their jurisdiction to Fifth Street. 

The complaint was filed October 15, 1891, and on November 13, 1891, 
the question of jurisdiction was raised by demurrer, and submitted on 
briefs. On April 7, 1892, Judge Garber filed a written opinion, wherein 
he fully sustained the position of the Board, and conceded them juris- 
diction to Ninth Street, or as far as the tide ebbs and flows. ^ 

This case has not as yet been further litigated, but it is highly advis- 
able to have the Supreme Court pass upon the question of jurisdiction 
before the Commission proceeds to construct costly improvements and 
incur large disbursements for dredging on Channel Street. The Boafd 
has now under consideration the institution of other proceedings, which, 
it is hoped, will definitely determine the long-standing and complicated 
questions of their rights on both sides of Channel Street, and the width i 

of blocks thereon, as far as the tide ebbs and flows. I

REPORT OF BOARD OF STATE HARBOR COMMISSIONERS. 31 

The People of the State, etc, ex rel. Board of State Harbor Commissioners 
vs. M. R. Roberts, No. 21668, Superior Court, No. 12989, Supreme 
Court 

This suit was an exceedingly important one, in that it involved a 
detewnination of two constitutional questions; first, as to the right to 
tax for dockage charges vessels engaged in the domestic trade, and if 
not, then all vessels were exempt from such charges; and second, as to 
the right of the Commission to exact dockage for the use of dredged 
slips, the defendant claiming that it was in effect a charge on tonnage, 
prohibited by the Constitution of the United States. 

The original complaint was filed November 15, 1887, and judgment 
entered in favor of the Board July 26, 1888, for $165 95 and costs. This 
judgment was, however, reversed by the Supreme Court on January 4, 
1891 (see 25 Pacific Reporter, p. 496), in an opinion, the effects of which, 
if followed, would have been far-reaching in their consequences. 

On January 17, 1891, 1 filed petition for rehearing, and on February 
3d the same was granted. On July 24, 1891, the case was orally 
argued before the Supreme Court in bank, and thereafter submitted on 
briefs. On January 13, 1892, the Court announced its decision, and 
affirmed in all respects the position taken by the Harbor Commis- 
sioners. Subsequently the defendant paid the full amount of principal, 
interests, and costs, and on February 20, 1892, the sum of $333 40 was 
paid in to the Board in full satisfaction of this judgment. 



The People y etc., ex rel. Board of State Harbor Commissioners vs. James 
Kerwin et al. No. 21614, Superior Court. No. 1S077, Supreme 
Court. 

In this case the Board sought to remove the defendants from their 
unlawful occupancy of Seawall Lot No. 7, being within the jurisdiction 
of the Commissioners and the property of the State. 

The complaint was filed November 8, 1887, and on September 27, 
1888, the cause was tried and decision rendered in favor of the Board, 
for the restitution of the premises as demanded. Defendants then 
appealed from that decision, and on March 6, 1892, the judgment was 
finally affirmed by the Supreme Court in bank. Supplemental pro- 
ceedings then followed in the lower Court, but on May 18, 1892, the 
defendants were evicted and the Board restored to the possession of the 
lot of land in controversy. 

Respectfully submitted. 

F. S. STRATTON, 
Attorney for the Board of State Harbor Commissioners.
